Free EB-5 Project Evaluation How do migration agents fit into the EB-5 process?

Generally speaking, migration agents serve as finders who refer potential EB-5 investors to regional centers. This is one of the ways regional centers source investors, particularly from China. Both regional centers and potential EB-5 investors should be cautious when engaging the services of migration agents—it is best to first consult an experienced immigration attorney. In the U.S., the services typically offered by migration agents are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC); however, foreign migration agents must comply only with the laws of their respective countries.
